Not to start a debate about equipment, or anything else. I have a straight forward questions for all.

I have a 10wt rod/reel (never used).
Heading to the coast in 2 months and would like to use the set up.

NOW...

Anything I can do pre/post to avoid damaging the reel beforehand?

I read in a blog post suggesting spraying the reel with teflon as a buffer.
Any suggestions as to how to clean afterwards would likely help too.

Any suggestions, ideas, etc would be greatly appreciated.

Again, not starting a debate about using fresh for salt etc.

Thanks in advance.

If it's a cast and powdercoated reel you may want to rethink using it in the salt. But just give it and the rod a thorough rinse in fresh water daily, and after the trip strip it, clean it, and lube it.

Just wash it off very well. You'll be good. Don't forget to wash your bugs and let them air dry.
